You’re probably familiar with Audra Mae’s work even if you don’t recognize her name: An L.A./Nashville-based singer-songwriter, she has co-written award-nominated songs for chart-topping artists like Celine Dion, Christina Aguilera, Kelly Clarkson and Miranda Lambert.

The Oklahoma native recently announced a live-stream appearance at 6:30 p.m. Friday, June 14, at Honest Ron’s Guitar Shop, 1129 N. May Ave., in Oklahoma City. The following night, she will take the stage for a live homecoming performance at Oklahoma City’s iconic Blue Door, 2805 N. McKinley Ave.

Mae’s work has been featured in 21 films and/or television shows, including “The Good Wife” and “Sons of Anarchy.”

In 2018, Mae released the album “Love, Audra Mae,” a love letter to her fans. It features songwriting contributions and guest appearances from Laura “LP” Pergolizzi, Julia Karlsson, Paul O’Duffy, Jimmy Harry, Aaron Raitiere, Todd Spadafore, Sean McConnell and Anton Rundberg.

Mae grew up playing guitar and piano and performing in local theaters in the Oklahoma City metro area before graduating from Putnam City High School. Concert proceeds will benefit the Academy of Contemporary Music at the University of Central Oklahoma. For more information about ACM@UCO, visit
